    Bahahaha. Funny! If they told everyone there was no bacon in certain countries no one would leave home! Mmmm…bacon…..!

      Yeah, Tigger would never go there if he knew that in advance. He’s already not thrilled with the idea of going to Turkey because of it.

      Conversely, it could be great marketing. “Come here. We have tons of bacon.”

    I miss bacon tooo much!! The meat in Argentina is delicious, but nothing beats a BLT does it

    Enjoyed this one…sooo funny!

    I would add, waiters and shop assistants in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece and probably many other countries will pick up your baby/toddler and whisk them away to the kitchen/around the hotel to show them off and give you a chance to eat your meal/do your shopping with two hands…..and guess what? they aren’t paedophiles!

      SO true! LOL I usually try to warn newer travelers who have small ones about that since it can be quite scary if you aren’t used to it. Some will ask, but I think most don’t. They just pick up the little on and off they go. LOL

    Oh yes! Your Thai food warning reminded me of the travel rule we made for ourselves and broke repeatedly out of desperation: do not eat Mexican food anywhere outside of the Americas. Maybe even outside of North America. And especially not in Europe. We kept making this mistake and kicking ourselves every time we did it.

      I was so happy to discover an authentic Mexican place and an almost authentic Thai place here in Prague! Have definitely been disappointed elsewhere for sure.

    I love this! Every word is so true. We are currently in Bali with the cute cat and dog problem!

      Are you finding many cats being receptive to being pet there? Tigger was disappointed that most cats would run away from him in Bali while in Morocco he was like the cat whisperer. lol

    No one warned us that the Parisians are actually quite friendly and helpful!

    Wait, Dark Chocolate with black salt? I don’t know that I’ve ever even seen black salt, but the combination together has me extremely intrigued. Hmmm, wonder if it would survive shipping? LOL Love my dark chocolate.

    I hope the produce made you moan in pleasure because it was so good? I wasn’t sure. 😉 This is a great post – I think advisory’s other than the safety issue would be a good thing!
